    Dreamy Orange Chicken

    Recipe By :Damsel in dis Dress

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves -- trimmed
    8 slices peeled oranges -- 1/4" thick
    3/4 cup fresh orange juice
    2 tablespoons grated orange zest
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    salt and white pepper -- to taste
    cayenne pepper -- to taste

    Preheat oven to 250F.

    Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken
    breasts and saute until golden, about 3-4 minutes per side.

    Add the orange slices and saute for a few minutes on each side. Remove
    from the pan and set aside. Add the orange juice and zest to the chicken;
    mix thoroughly. Continue cooking until the chicken breasts are tender,
    about 8-9 minutes. Remove chicken to a baking pan, cover, and place in the
    oven to keep warm.

    Add the cream to the skillet and heat to boiling over high heat. Boil for
    2-3 minutes, stirring to deglaze the pan. Add salt and white pepper to
    taste. Pour cream sauce into a gravy boat for serving.

    Serve the chicken breasts with two sauteed orange slices on each piece.
    Pour cream sauce over the top, then sprinkle with cayenne pepper to taste.
